FSO is involved in numerous environment, safety, health and security-focused activities annually. These include comprehensive assessments, tripartite assessments, and participation in internal Fermilab Quality Assurance audits. FSO conducts over 100 walkthroughs of Fermilab facilities annually. FSO also performs regular weekly inspections of the major construction activities occurring on-site.

FSO conducts performance assessments in the areas of Industrial Hygiene (which included Chronic Beryllium Prevention Program), Radiation Safety, Hoisting and Rigging, Quality Assurance, and the Greenhouse Gas Emissions Program. These reviews ensure that Programs operate effectively and no significant program gaps exist.
